This week we clocked up our 31st graduate in the same job over 12 months. This really is significant, which ever way you look at it! Tempus Novo continue to prove that those criminal justice experts who say “joined up working and post custody care” are the answer are in fact right.
Thanks to Philippa Harding and Iain Sharkey of HMP Wealstun and Justin Drake and Steve Robson of HMP Leeds for helping to make all of this possible. Together we have given these 31 ex offenders an opportunity to have a life away from crime and prisons. Of course it doesn’t stop there as their families will now benefit from the stability a regular salary brings. Most of all though, for me it is the opportunity that their children will now have, seeing Dad as a great role model and likely following their example.
